Racial inequality and American politics

Tue 10 Nov 2020, 17:00 - 17:45

The British Academy on Zoom Webinar

In this three-part series, leading African-American scholars explore the long history of racial inequality in the US.

In this event, Fredrick Harris joins Desmond King to reflect on the outcome of the 2020 US presidential race. What are the key takeaways from the election, particularly in relation to voter engagement? Will the Black Lives Matter movement change America in this election year? And how will the movement for racial equality push forward post-election?

Chair: Professor Desmond King FBA, Andrew W Mellon Professor of American Government, University of Oxford
